Yes 73C is too hot for any CPU

please explain your current set-up with regard to case air flowing / i.e. number of case fans, their approximate loaction (front of case down low or back of case up high etc) and direction of air flow.

Another helpful method: remove the side case cover and run a house fan blowing into the computer = see how much the temp drops >>>> if the temps drops down to 50C at normal workload then you probally just need improved and added case cooling >>>> however if your temps only drop a few degrees then your thermal paste and or heat sink isnt doing the trick.

at that point you will need to check your heatsink & cpu fan >>> does it wobble at all ??????


let us know what your temps are after you run the house fan ????


regards

joe
